Subject: The Lone Ranger
I was perusing YouTube a few days back and came across some comments on my channel concerning The Lone Ranger.

This woman said that they movie she just saw was very infantile, and designed for children. She could not believe that such a movie would ever be popular, and that certainly movies were much better today.

To this woman and her thinking. In my views, The Lone Ranger signifies everything that is good and decent in the world. We did not need to see car crashes, cursing, sex and violence in order to be fully entertained. I feel that Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels deserve all the praise and recognition for providing good clean entertainment, that always had a plot.

Just as a footnote, my five year old granddaughter LOVES The Lone Ranger! This and other old western series is about all that we watch on TV.

Subject: I lived near him
From 1950 till 1957 I was a paperboy for the Detroit Free Press in Royal Oak, the morning paper. I had two great customers, The Lone Ranger and Sargent Preston of the Yukon. Both where transcribed from WXYZ in Detroit.
When I was starting the seventh grade I had an attack of appendicitis. But the great thing was, from the hospital I was in, I could listen to the Lone Ranger three times a day. From WXYZ in Detroit, from Toledo, Ohio and Windsor, Ontario.
What more could a kid ask for!

Subject: Thanksgiving Day Special
I remember watching this every Thanksgiving for several years. We got our 1st TV in'55 so I would have been in 4th or 5th grade when I first saw it.

I don't remember if I got tired of it or they just quite playing it.

Subject: The first filmed Western on network television...
This "movie" was re-edited from the first three episodes of the series- "Enter The Lone Ranger" [9/15/49], "The Lone Ranger Fights On" [9/22/49], and "The Lone Ranger's Triumph" [9/29/49]. It took three episodes to retell the famous origin story, written for radio by Fran Striker [the most prolific of all the series' writers].

The TV show was a direct offshoot of the radio series (which continued to air three nights a week- Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays- while the TV version appeared on Thursdays), right down to scripts directly adapted from the radio version, and the theme and stock music also heard on radio. Gerald Mohr, however, was the announcer and narrator on TV in its earlier seasons. Fred Foy, who became the radio show's announcer in 1948, wasn't heard on TV until 1954 (the year the radio show ended production, with transcribed repeats through 1956)- but he IS heard in the opening title, which dates from 1954, around the time this "movie" was compiled.

Subject: We all rode with the Lone Ranger
Clayton Moore had a great build, voice, and self command. Jay Silverheels was so smooth and honest that I resented anyone who disrespected him. This 1949 program was pretty well done. Radio had begun its exit as the way Americans spent their evenings. The new technology of television let people see what previously could only be heard.

Subject: Origins of the Lone Range
The Lone Ranger was so named by Tonto. His real name is Reid. He was the sole surviver of a group of Texas Rangers ambushed by bad guys. Tonto found the bodies but found Reid still alive. When Reid woke up he asked Tonto about his fellow Texas Rangers. Tonto explained they were all dead and added "You, lone ranger.".

Oh yes, I agree with the previous post; what questions were answered, many. Tears were shed some, a great view if you enjoy the Lone Ranger. Who was that masked man ? I'll never tell....

Subject: Over 60? This'll take you back with a smile.
I was fascinated; all the questions unspoken but relevant over the years of Lone Ranger on the radio were answered. Who was the Lone Ranger, where did he come from, and Tonto ... how did they meet? The drama of Silver's appearance, the story of the "silver bullet".... A thousand smiles, the goose pimples with the theme, admittedly a few tears.
And even a guest appearance by the Sadaam Hussein of the old west, the "Cavendish" the bad guy a dead ringer for our more recent villain. If you're over 60, this will be an hour remarkably well spent.

and it's a shame. Excellent adaption of the radio show, Clayton Moore IS the Lone Ranger, and Glenn Strange is great as the leader of the Cavendish Gang. Great story with great pacing and a lot of action that still holds up well today. This makes for a quality show for family time.
